brown and elizabeth warren. later, a debate for the candidates for senator in nebraska. today's newspaper features a front-page article on ross perot. we travel to the office thursday to report the interview the article is based on. now this is an hour. goo [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> ross perot, i want to know how long has it been since you have been in the public 5. >> i have been in the public five about the national debt and the country and not cause problems -- in the public eye about the national debt and the country's problems. >> has it been too long since somebody like you commanded public attention so you could get the public to understand these sorts of issues? >> i am not in a good position to say that, but we need to clearly describe what has happened and what we need to do to get this under control, and right now everybody is dancing around eight as opposed to facing it. if you have cancer, the first thing you want to do is they said. we have economic cancer at this point -- i
. scott brown is no better than even in massachusetts. other states where there were hoping to pick up north dakota, missouri, the candidates faltered. the numbers are not so good there. on the house side, democrats need 25, but they have a bunch of vulnerable incumbents. the number of seats where democrats are retiring could cause republicans to pick up as well. host: you were in missouri last week. what did you hear about the senate race? guest a once upon a time, claire mccaskill was the most democrats -- most vulnerable democrat, if not the most vulnerable incumbent. she had been very close with barack obama, and he was very unpopular in the state. and she had this controversy where there was an airplane owned by her family that was being written off for tax reasons. then came the republican primary and taught a can, he won in the primary somehow, though thought to be the weakest. then he had this unfortunate comment about how legitimate rate is not likely to cause pregnancy -- rape is not likely to cause pregnancy, becoming fodder for late-night comedians and giving heartburn to r
to that interaction that we showed earlier between mr. brown and miss elizabeth warren? >> na is sort of textbook how not to run against a female candidate. remember when rick lazio when he ran against hillary clinton and the way he was aggressive and sort of came off like a jerk. the difficulty in debating a woman, it came up debating sarah palin, is that there's a way you handle debating a woman on television so you don't want to look like the heavy and you definitely don't want to look like you're condescending to her or talking down to her. i think scott brown did himself a world of harm in the way he came across. >> because scott brown has always been regarded as a likable chap. you might not like his policies but he's had an affect which people have found warm and personalable. >> i think in this debate and the previous debate he's ruined that image for himself. he's been seen as sort of like a bully. he keeps going after her on this native american question, just over and over again. his campaign is almost centered on it. even when they asked him a question, a sort of fluffy question about the
brownstein writes with one key voting block noncollege educated white women. or as brown stein refers to them as waitress moms. through a targeted and sustained appeal to working women on display in obama ads like this one the incumbent has been particularly effective and brown stein's piece he writes democrats say blue collar women have been the principle and most receptive target for their extended ad barrage portraying romney as plutocrat. on airing these on dr. phil and judge judy the strategy seems to be paying off lifting obama's numbers among a group that tilts republicans in swing states that will be a key to victory in november. ask you about this, this late stage i call it a late -- i don't know what i called it a last stage gaps when going into the commercial break, but we've -- this has been something we've seen in the numbers for a while now, romney has a problem among latinos and women and in particular, you know, the latino demographics, 70/20 are terrible numbers. bill clinton got the highest percentage of the hispanic vote in '96, 72%. looks like the president is on track to
, no one will admit this, it is really the browning of america and how this country is changing in a good way and thus in the process by people. because we're becoming more and more browner if, you will, our legislature, our elected officials should be reflective of that, right? i know in the republican party, that's always a very uncomfortable conversation to have. the reason why and i believe this is code -- you know what shall the america that i grew up in is not the same anymore. it feels different. what are you really saying here? are you saying that the values of our system are changing or are you saying that this country does not look as white as it used to be. that's really what i think the underlying conversation i think we should have but it's an uncomfortable conversation to have. >> this year was the first time that more than 50% of children who were born in this year were born to parents who were nonwhite or one parent was. >> our next asian president, our next indian president is out there. he or she will most likely be elected in our lifetime -- >> as long as it's not bobby
of depressing news, but i want to give props to governor jerry brown of the state of california. california has become the first state in the nation to ban gay cure therapy for children. i think that gay reparative therapy is hilarious. i have some friends who tried to teach lots of guys to not be straight, and it didn't work. i can assume it's only the way for our gay children. governor brown signed the bill prohibiting children from under the age of 18 from undergoing sexual orientation change efforts. this to me is like getting rid of leeches to treat cancer. the law goes into effect january 1 and prohibits state-licensed therapists from engaging in these practices with minors. if you have a child who's gay in california and you want to ungay them and change who they really are, you can't do it with medical professionals. you have to rely on religious crack pots and that's and it is great, great advance in society. michele bachmann's extraordinarily extremely hetero sexual husband marcus has run a gay reparative clinic for a while. i can only hope this senate bill is going to be a positive f
to sherrod brown, who says that happens in the brown campaign. i suspect that is happening in many campaigns. there is so much fact checking going on, not just with our organizations, but with others. we have partners in 11 states. there are newspapers and website around the country doing fact checking. there are a lot of eyes out there. >> that suggest, if things are that closely vetted and mauled over before they are said, especially speeches at the conventions, when they come out and repeat things that they know are going to the fact that again, that suggests there is no price. they have concluded that the price is so small that they are willing to -- >> there may be a price, but it is balanced against the fact that it is a tested and the fact of life that moves voters. you do a cost-benefit analysis, like anything in life, the benefits quickly away the costs of yet another column in "the washington post" or the associated press that says there is no money there your saving from ending the war. >> it happens. >> sometimes i am struck by the aggressiveness of the ads, compared to what come
that money on my friend. don't spend it against sharon brown. >> somewhere in this picture insincerity. >> go to the bottom of the ocean with the dirty secret money. >> why is it dirty secret when it goes to karl rove but it isn't when it goes to the obama pacs? what's the difference? >> about 100 fold. >> so you only call it dirty secret ifit's more money. >> in all sincerity i agree with you. i think that this race is still sufficiently close at the national level. and we'll see what happens tonight. obviously it could be a game changer in one direction or another. but i think it would be faolly for groups like that to bail. >> it's bipartisanship. >> the captain of the titanic, ride it down. >> yesterday unsolicited advice was for jenny mccarthy. >> i'm going to go to something more serious, to my fellow conservatives. please stop getting excited about secret maybe not so secret videos of president obama saying things before he was elected president of the united states. you saw this on fox news last night. a video of president obama giving a speech to a group of black ministers in which h
. >> oh, my god. brown hair. i still remember his brown hair. >> what has this country, what does this culture look like to a kid coming from mexico? >> it was a wonderful opportunity because this country gave me the opportunities that my country of origin couldn't give me. i was censored in mexico when i was 23 and 24. >> as a reporter? >> as a reporter. it was the usual thing in mexico. the government would say what you could say on the air and what you couldn't say on the air. i decided i didn't want to be that kind of reporter so i sold everything and came to the united states. just imagine that now i can talk to anyone without asking permission for anything. i had to leave my country because of that. it used to be said that the powerful and the rich never leave their country, only those who need possibilities and those who are poor and those who are ambitious leave their countries. that's exactly what happened with me. i came here because i had to come here. something pushed me out of mexico and something pulled me from the united states. now i have two passports, but honestl
. no. it is brown plato. they got the point*. but in all seriousness i need to be censored for my first amendment right but they are not? i know the real fascist. i should put this on e-bay and make a fortune. lou: free-speech. but what one does not like is more speech. bad art is more bad art. >> they were offended. actually. lou: you are being modest. i think this is masterful art to. >> and honestly say i have not seen a piece of art like that before. the president is at the height of hypocrisy with his actions. it is deplorable. lou: with religious preference and sensibility the president has steamrolled with contraception, abortion, rel igious preference, unless you happen to be muslim. >> certainly there is a tremendous double standard. this president picks and chooses. he showed no hesitation with his rules to force religious organizations to cover contraception which it is in opposition of direct teachings of the catholic church. lou: looking at the polls, which despite everything even the conflict of the catholic church, president obama leads among catholic voters by 15%. condu
the bill that cuts would has browned potatoes and onions because i have never tasted before. honored departure she wrote a letter to ronald reagan describing the time she had spent in america doing what she liked best, looking at beautiful thoroughbreds and walking in the wide-open spaces by the absence. the american west had a long held a fascination for the queen. one of her most intriguing american friends has been a monty roberts, a california cowboy who is known as the horse whisperer for his humane techniques to train horses in a circular pen. she was so impressed by what she had read about his approach that she invited him to demonstrate his technique at windsor castle in 1989. come show me this lion's cage of yours, she said. do i need a whip and change? as montae recalled to me, said that not only with the twinkle but that her message addressing him clearly her talent put him at ease. his demonstration was a big success, and the queen and the cowboys struck up a fast. over lunch in the castle garden she asked him numerous questions i saw mine open up, he recalled. when he to
, alvin brown. and i want to know who do you think impacts -- who are the people that are moved by this dog whistle? >> caller: people that are listening to information that is incorrect, they are being fed fear. they are afraid because of their livelihoods. they are stuck in an era in their mind where possibly the idea of a black person was someone who was -- wanted to live off of the government. it's just -- it's like watching an old movie, and believing the old movie was real. i think that's the way to put it. >> jamal: so we know that's the case. we have a president of the united states who has been arguing to the country that we know we're in a ditch. we know we have got to get out of a ditch. but do we get out of it by everybody getting behind and pushing the car out, or are we all going to get out of the ditch, every man and woman for him or herself are we going to work together or not? do you think that is something america is going to want? >> i get the feeling that mitt romney is being told what to do. i just feel that he's -- he's being manipul
browns. and they gave bush entrÉe into his own texas rangers, which is one, the only lucrative investment he ever made. he put his vixen a dozen dollars and came away with about $15 million. and this company, smart tag, which started out as a legitimate technology company soon became a republican operation. and it's all good while the republicans are conservative groups should have their websites and so forth. but this is very unusual and i saw george w. bush 43 was fair. the republican committee hosted it websites. hundreds and hundreds of conservative groups were there. again, that is all fine and well. this company, which is highly, highly partisan also overtime required in contracts that i think probably should not have gone to such a partisan company. in the me just say two. one was if you're in the white house to meet your e-mail according to the presidential records are public documents and they're supposed to be hosted on whitehouse.gov. the rose made sure his e-mails were hosted on smart tack in any of his staffers, other people in the white house also had their e-mails there. so
of illegals in the country are living in california. so was this a good call by jerry brown? let's ask john fund. obviously this is part of president obama's new law which allows those under 16 who meet a number of criteria who came here under 16, i should say, to enjoy some of the benefits of citizenship and work. so say this is the safest way to go for those people to allow them to get a driver's license. >> let's thank governor brown for one small favor. there is one worse bill he did veto which would have prohibited state authorities from cooperating with the federal authorities in deporting someone. i think president obama's original action will go through the courts and long before any states should act on it we should see if it's viewed as constitutional. martha: you are saying wait until it goes through the courts then proceed with this. >> what happens if the court say obama overstepped his authority? will we take back the driver's licenses? this is why we need voter i.d. at the polls. real voter i.d. at the polls that's just for citizens. once you have a driver's license everyone
nothing back, telling about the secrets that ended his marriage. as terrell brown reports, reaction to the former governor's confession has been quick and critical. >> was that the only affair? >> no. but, you know -- >> after his candid and unremorseful interview, schwarzenegger paraded his new memoir on book shores and on talk shows monday. >> i just created a huge screw-up. >> reporter: but the outrage was swift to cross morning television. >> he's horrible. i thought he was just awful in this interview. he has no guilt, nothing. >> she gave up her career for him when he became governor and that doesn't seem to bother him either. >> reporter: his casualness even evoked anger. >> he's full of crap! he's like i'm the big man, i can handle it. he hasn't got a heart. there's nothing in there. >> and he's just getting bang, bang, bang. and i'm thinking to myself is it really worth it for some dopey book? >> reporter: by late night, schwarzenegger had become a frequent punch line. >> that's a nice way to atone for it, isn't it? bragging about it in a book. yeah, i nailed her. i nailed
in the nation that has done this for kids and for teenagers. governor jerry brown signed this ban in into law over this past weekend and tweeted about it. let me read one of his tweets. this bill bans nonscientific, quote, therapies that have driven young people to depression and suicide. joining me is david pickup, a reparative therapist and spokesman for the national association of research and therapy of homosexuality, he is getting miked up. also with me right now is cnn's senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen. so, elizabeth, as we await david, just begin with what we know about this so-called reparative therapy. >> the american psychological association had a task force that took a long look at this. and here's what they came up with. they said there is no good studies showing it works or doesn't work. so no good studies showing this works. they say some people have been harmed by it, depression, other problems. and this is a quote, there is insufficient evidence to support the use of psychological interventions to change sexual orientation. >> okay. >> plainly spoken. >> hold tha
-- most of the republicans are extremely difficult to work with. and vice versa. >> scott brown working with democrats. >> but she can't work with scott brown if she's replacing him. >> no, i'm just saying, scott brown works with democrats. he really does. i'll tell you what. >> watch him. >> salient point. >> all night long. >> wow! >> look, it goes both ways. >> he locked himself in a room for one month and he comes up with that? >> he's a good boy. >>> still ahead, bob woodward and former national security adviser dr. brzezinski. >> you say that well.

[ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> that's the best we got? >> al hunt, thank you. >> al, put the hat back on! all right. >> let's go! >> yeah, baby! let's go, senators, right? >> very handsome in that hat. >>> coming up next, pulitzer prize-winning editor of "the
to the races. republican congressman paul brown of georgia, quote, september jobs report raises questions. quote, i don't think bls cooked numbers. i think a bunch of dems lied about getting jobs. that would have the same effect. that was from a senior writer at something called the washington examiner, a conservative thing online. eric bolling who is at fox news, he wrote, wow. obama labor department smarter than all 25 of america's top economists. or something far more inside ous. i don't know. then there was this from conservative talk radio host laura ingram. quote, jobs numbers from labor secretary hilda solis are total pro obama propaganda. just looking on twitter you could see the ground swell on the right that they were going to build their own iran-ternet on this. forget the real world they were going to build their own private world that made them happier. the real world is inconvenient. we will have our own. the real facts are not accepted. we will have our own. time for fresh fact. you could see the ground swell building for this on the right first online but then of course wh
a hostage crisis. we're going to talk about ronald reagan. msnbc, they converted the scott brown, our beloved scott brown versus elizabeth warren that she checked off falsely that she is cherokee. she has the lowest requirements of any professor of any of the top law schools. she refuses to release that information. everyone knows she stole someone else's. she is -- he is being attacked to raise the issue. he is attacking for her being a cherokee. no. it's exactly the opposite. it's about not being a cherokee and she is related not to cherokee but to a white enforcer to trail of tears. she is stealing the suffering of native americans to teach from harvard law school and you wouldn't know that from listening to msnbc. >> your book is you say, how liberals have played the race card historically you believe to win black voters? >> for a hundred years they denounced black people to win a segment of the white vote,. now, they are still using race to win votes not only from black people. keep telling them republicans hate them but from white people who don't want to feel racist. it isn't a
along with our federal senator, senator sherrod brown. ohioans know what affects us all affects us indirectly and so the fact that the unemployment rate is below 8% is great news as well. >> we've been focusing this morning on the latino vote. how big of an effect could they have this time around, do you think? >> a huge impact. very huge impact in the state of ohio and all across the nation, and i believe that hispanic voters understand as well who has their back in terms of the 47%. you know, can you not represent people who you have disdain for, and no matter how governor romney tried to dress it up during his debate with the president, the fact remains that when he was in a setting of comfort among wealthy donors he said how he really felt about the 47%, so i believe that hispanic voters, african-american voters, other voters of color, people who live in poverty, working class people, understand who supports them and who wants to make sure that they can have the opportunity to live their measure of the american dream, and that is undoubtedly president obama. >> but if you look
'm able to do a lot of things. >> you are campaigning for senator scott brown in massachusetts, what about him appeals to you? >> he has been an independent thinker, and i like that. he has been able to stand up to the leadership in congress, and it is not easy to do. >> you live here in a home that is a beautiful -- it is a horse farm. >> actually, it used to be hay, now it is mulch hay, and we run pigs and cattle, it is where i grew up. >> so are you a city girl or a country girl? >> no, this -- i'm a country girl, this has been my home, my parents bought this, and i farmed it ever since. >> we loved our time with her, and we'll begin two weeks of office politics. >>> and still ahead, the afghanistan war started 11 years ago, today. and now new questions on why we don't just pull out now. you're watching "weekends with alex witt." res with toothpaste. but they have to use special care in keeping the denture clean. dentures are very different to real teeth. they're about 10 times softer and may have surface pores where bacteria can multiply. polident is designed to clean dentures daily. i
the fact that brokers in virginia had elected a republican. in massachusetts, the scott brown race was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance,
